China recommends Nobel Prize to the Wuhan Lab for its research on COVID-19.

China's Foreign Ministry argued that Wuhan Lab deserves a Nobel Prize for the COVID-19 research study.

China's Foreign Ministry argued that Wuhan Lab deserves a Nobel Prize for the COVID-19 research study.China's Wuhan lab has been at the forefront of controversy since the pandemic began. It is alleged that the coronavirus may have leaked from that lab. The team of WHO scientists who investigated the origins of the COVID-19 did not arrive at any conclusion for lack of evidence. However, the chorus has grown to investigate the origins of COVID-19, as many scientists argue that it emerged from the Wuhan lab. China has dismissed such theories as unwarranted and extremely unlikely.

When asked by the reporter to comment on accusations of falsifying the COVID-19 origins by some in the U.S., the Chinese spokesperson said that those people have chosen to ignore the WHO report and have been hyping up the "lab leak theory" and politicizing the origin-tracing issue. He continued by saying that the team in Wuhan should be awarded the Nobel Prize in medicine for their research on COVID-19 based on the analogy that other researchers have been awarded the Nobel prize for their contribution in discovering HIV and microbes.
